    Very true.

    Just picked this up the other night:


    It's a 2006 BikesDirect Mercier Galaxy. It's in great condition; the original owner (my neighbor) bought it new in 2006 and I assembled it. He rode it around the block a couple of times and hung it in his garage until I took it off his hands. It's not the highest quality bike, but considering I'm currently roadbike-less, it's perfect.

    The only thing really wrong with it is that the front derailleur is broken and that the wheels were never tensioned or trued properly. I've already installed Tiagra front and rear derailleurs and my GF is taking to wheels into the shop tomorrow for me. I've also replaced the bars with a set of Bontrager ergonomic bars, and I've got a set of Look pedals waiting to be put on (I have no cleats yet, heh.)


    Oh, and I put the original saddle back on. That E3 saddle is horrible.

    I wouldn't ever let that shop touch my bike. That install looks both careless and lazy. I would hate to think what the quality of their work is on jobs that actually require some effort.

    Finally have the bike back together... Upgraded the wheels to Aksiums, the drive train (minus crank) to Rival from sora and the Crank to 105 from FSA. The crank was done before I went Sram but I'll be grabbing a Rival crank soon! What do you guys think?

    I really like it. I love the silver components. I would be tempted to leave the silver 105 cranks on there and use the money you plan on spending to buy black rotor, ta, stronglight or praxis chainrings. 105 cranksets are pretty nice but the chainrings look cheap.

    I love the 105 standard... I figure having the rival crank might be smoother. But after aa short ride today it wasn't bad at all with the 105.

    My bike is the poor little brother of yours haha. I feel like Giants don't get a huge amount of love on here though. Amazing bike though!

    +1
    Giants get no love in the 41, even though the Giant factory produces most of the "major US" frames.
    I guess our bike are "poor little brothers of everyone else".


    How do you like the SRAM over Shimano?

    Sora was crap... Now I feel more comfortable when I'm in the drops in need of a shift. Rival is great and having that extra gear really helps. I've only got about 10 miles on the bike since the swap but I think I'll stay SRAM.

    Nice! Interestingly, I have the same trainer.

    My Fall project:



    Nothing really fancy, I just miss the feel of Steel.
    This is how I got her, I haven't tweaked anything yet.
    I just picked her up for $90, planning on updating a few things, & making this my grocery/cruiser.
    Planning on changing the saddle, & seat post 1st.

    Here's my Nashbar steel CX with my soon-to-be road bike: Fuji SST 3.0! During the test ride, I realized it's stiff as crap but it felt like a rocket compared to the CX!

    The blue hue on the Fuji's frame is pretty.

    It helps break up the all black look, imo it looked better then the upgraded models.
